Last week we had a one-day trip to Chalkidiki for both business & pleasure. It was actually the first time we visited Chalkidiki this year, and I couldn’t hide my excitement about it. We went to 3 towns that day: Potidaia, Skioni and finally Pefkohori where we relaxed by the sea. We took the first set of photos at a beach in Skioni, and the 2nd at the Agistri beach bar in Pefkohori. I actually wanted to check out this beach bar, after I saw the photos and video of Anatoli there recently, and I couldn’t help but also take some photos there. I usually don’t wear anything special to go the beach, just an airy & comfortable dress or some shorts, because I don’t like getting sand and salt on my other clothes. So you’ll always find me wearing something totally simple, with absolutely no makeup on. I naturally have quite light skin (and this was only my 5th time at the beach this summer), however I look extremely white in these photos due to the lighting. It was a really full but pleasant day, spent in the company of my boyfriend and good friends. Even though summer is almost over, I hope to squeeze in a few more beach days, and maybe one more one-day trip to Chalkidiki as well. How about you? Where did you go on vacation this summer? Let me know by leaving a comment below.
As most Thessalonians, I’ve been spending most summers of my life in beautiful Chalkidiki. I have to thank my uncle for this, who decided to build a house in the most beautiful place in Neos Marmaras, and my cousins who keep inviting me every summer for some days of relaxation away from the city. I was originally planning to stay for a week (which is a lot for me) but I prolonged my vacation for 2 more days. That was the most relaxation I had in a long time, and I really enjoyed my time there. I’ve already showed you some of the photos we took (check: What’s in my beach bag, Heading to the beach, and sunset at the beach posts, if you haven’t already), but before August comes to an end, I wanted to share some general photos from my vacation. I have a couple of posts left from my time there, but they’ll have to wait till September. But don’t worry, you’ll see them next week! 😉
This isn’t exactly an outfit post, more like what I usually wear to go to the beach. Most of the times, I wear a light dress or some shorts, and I always carry my big orange bag, containing all my beach essentials. I want to be as comfortable as possible in my beachwear, and wear as less as possible to avoid the summer heat. So this is what I wore one of the days I was in Chalkidiki, to go to the beach. Of course we took these photos just before we left home. What do you prefer to wear when going for a swim?
